This 'Caribbean Steel Pan - 30 Player Jumbie Desktop Class Pack - Budget Buddies' contains 10 desktop Jumbie Jam steel pans and 20 hand percussion instruments. Also included are two books by World Music specialist Andy Gleadhill; ‘Caribbean Steel Pan Book’ and ‘Percussion Buddies’.
Using the same approach that has so successfully helped hundreds of generalist teachers to introduce African Drumming, Indonesian Gamelan, Brazilian Samba and other World Music styles in classrooms all over the UK, Andy Gleadhill’s Caribbean Steel Pan Book will show you basic techniques and warm-up exercises which cover all the elements of music.
The session guidance within will help you and your group progress rapidly through 10 weekly lessons, to the point that the class can perform a range of Steel Pan pieces confidently.
The Percussion Buddies book will show you how to develop percussion accompaniments for almost any piece, whether drumming, choral, ukulele or any other ensemble.
The Jumbie Jam is a high quality, entry level steel pan. It is smaller than a full size steel pan and has 8 notes, which are labelled and tuned to the scale of G. A blend of simple design, durability and ease of teaching/learning makes the Jumbie Jam steel pan a fantastic instrument for music education.
The steel pan is very accessible and has both percussive and melodic musical capabilities, creating a well-rounded musical experience that children will love to take part in.
